"The summer after university, Emma Woodhouse returns home to the village of Highbury, where she will live with her health-conscious father until she is ready to launch her interior-design business and strike out on her own. In the meantime, she will do what she does best: offer guidance to those less wise in the ways of the world than herself. Happily, this summer brings many new faces to Highbury and into the sphere of Emma's not always perfectly felicitous council: Harriet Smith, a naive teacher's assistant at the ESL school run by the hippie-ish Mrs. Goddard; Frank Churchill, the attractive stepson of Emma's former governess; and, of course, the perfect Jane Fairfax. This Emma is wise, witty, and totally enchanting, and will appeal equally to Sandy's multitude of fans and the enormous community of wildly enthusiastic Austen aficionados"--… (mere)

A delightful and fresh update of Jane Austen's classic, full of acerbic wit. Ms. Austen would approve. My one complaint? A sad dearth of Knightley. ( )

I found this to be an "ok" retelling, but not overly compelling. ( )

I haven't read Jane Austen's "Emma" and it's been awhile since I've seen any of the movies based on it, so I didn't really have the story in mind for comparison. I'm used to the author's style from reading quite a few of his other books, so I was not surprised when he went on tangents. This was a pretty good story overall. ( )

I really like all Jane Austen's books... except Emma. I dislike the eponymous character and all her works and all her empty promises... oops, wrong allusion. So it was with curiosity and mild trepidation that I approached this book. Alexander McCall Smith, however, has done the impossible and given us an Emma whom I can like. Emma-the-rewrite is written in much the same style as the Scotland Street series. We flit from the mind of one character to another, privy to their reflections and interior monologues. Since AMS is an unusually kind and compassionate person, more so than many of us such as (for instance) Jane Austen, this approach gives us a very compassionate look at Emma's motivations and foibles and I found myself, if not totally in sympathy, at least more so than before. He also gives a great deal of backstory to Mr Woodhouse and again, I liked the character better for it. To understand all is to forgive all, or at least to forgive nearly all. ( )

Citater
Oplysninger fra den engelske Almen Viden Redigér teksten, så den bliver dansk.
Was there something about her—some vaguely fragile quality—that made men fear that if they got too close to her, if they actually touched her, she would break? There were some people who gave one that impression: they were not made for the rough and tumble of ordinary life.
Disinclination to discuss a subject that needs to be discussed is never a solution: the topic merely assumes increasing prominence the longer it remains untouched.
She had felt it during their sparring, but now she felt the rawness that followed from the argument. Disagreements, even with people she knew, made her feel like that—shocked, perhaps, at the animus that can lie behind mere words.
Why should she care what he thought? Why should she bother if she had somehow fallen short of whatever standards he had mentally created for her?
"That's nothing to do with education, Pops. It's the culture. That's what happens. Isabella herself is losing her h's. When she comes here for the weekend, I find them all over the place once she leaves. Loads of them. Dropped with utter abandon."
